    Please ping me as well, as I would be interested in making an RX 480 based AW18 with a 960m/965m physx driver. You only get a 330w hard limit on the AW18 so I want to leave about 130w for just the CPU.

    I am not sure if I will try it or not. Was discussing the same over here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ers-welcome-too.810490/page-271#post-10742520

    If and when I do, it might require some tweaking by @Prema to work in the P870DM-G. If I were to get one, it would most likely end up in my desktop and my excellent 8700K in the desktop would be moved over to P870DM-G. Unless it turns out to be no better at overclocking than the 8700K in my desktop now.

    It seems to be a rebranded 8700K that has better bin quality, like a Silicon Lottery CPU. @jaybee83 posted this.

    Be nice if you could borrow one just to throw in it to try without any mods to the bios. I'm thinking it would work since it's more or less an 8th gen coffee lake cpu like the i5 8600,etc etc...the other coffee lakes will work in your P870 right?

    Yes as @jaybee83 said and from what i read in 3 or 4 tech news websites that the i7 8086k is just an well picked i7 8700k basically even some providers like Overclockers UK they gone fancy "including some i7s with superior silver / copper IHS for even lower temperatures" and in the end it's a question of Ocing stability/temps and the only hope is they reached 5GHZ even with tooth past in those cpus :D imagine with LM in them and reviews in the future'll show what can do :rolleyes:
